6:03 am
, your best bet using mold even road or provident roth but for the gang from new jersey starting to see delays on the freeway, headlights heading toward walt whitman bridge, no problems on i-95 or schuylkill and mass transit so far so good. amtrak 501 emergency, emergency, we are on the ground. we are on the bridge. >> unaudible. >> on the freeway. >> frantic first moments from that amtrak conductor calling for help. it is right after the train derailed yesterday morning in washington state killing three people. new details this morning. the point, well, the speed on that curve possible factor, that does sound familiar, doesn't it the train was traveling 50 miles an hour, more than it should have been in that curve for many here it
6:04 am
serves as a thrilling reminder of another deadly derailment, two years ago in port richmond >> our lauren johnson has been covering this and joins us with all of the details on this one, lauren. >> reporter: very sad case of deja vu for officials over at amtrak. we saw this here in philadelphia back in 2015, now it is happening again this time, on the other coast. early yesterday morning train 501 on maiden voyage from sat toll portland, authorities reveal the train was going 50 miles faster then it should have been on the stretch of track and there are reports that the train hit something on the track that led to that disaster, amtrak said five crew members were on board alone with roughly 80 passengers, dozens were injured, hospitalized, three killed and two and a half years ago may 2015 an amtrak train derailed after stopping at 30th street station, headed toward new york city, that derailment killed eight people , injured 100 more because train was traveling
6:05 am
too fast in a curve, at that time, the speed control system was not installed and as a result the positive speed control was installed throughout northeast corridor and amtrak president confirmed this train track did not have that technology in washing ton >> when we got to the scene it was obvious there were fatalities and injuries and some people were able to get off the train. >> just looking at other train cars that were really messed up especially one we landed on when i stepped out i didn't realize i was standing on another train car. >> i'm just wand fairing they did any dry runs on this before the passengers were aboard. >> reporter: to answer her question on friday, dignitaries did do a dry run ahead of the monday's maiden voyage because it was part of the new line, 800 million-dollar was spent in rail improvements meant to create safer quality by eliminating defects, upgrading signals and improving crossing s. in the case of that
6:06 am
philadelphia crash the engineer brandon bostian is actually due back in court this week. he could be facing criminal charges. as for that accident out in washington it is too early to tell what will happen in that case. authorities do tell us they have not even searched all 13 of the 14 cars that left the track, karen and mike, so that could mean fatalities could rise and that death toll number will increase. >> apparently some of the cars are just so precarious they just say it ties unsafe to go into them. all right. thanks, lauren. also happening in the city of philadelphia, the murder of a 27 year-old man, he was found shot in the basement of his home in overbrook. >> lets get out to steve keeley to explain what we know right now, steve. >> reporter: so often over work homicide team here at headquarters gets cases where people are in their houses watching tv. they hear gunfire outside on the street and they don't see anybody come or go, don't know anything about the murder. rare is it that the people are
6:07 am
watching tv, right in prime time at 8:00 in their living room on the first floor and gunfire comes from just feet below in their basement. somebody is killed. they don't see anybody come or go. that is what they have here, families at headquarters talking to homicide but not able really at first to tell them much about who shot and killed the 27 year-old son, just a floor below in the basement where he has his bedroom and living area they are up on the first floor, this is a mid block row house on oxford street near 60th in west philadelphia 27 year-old downstairs where he has been living, he obviously has a private entrance to come and go out back and also that is likely how the killer came and went without notice because the family never even knew he had anybody over the house visiting him, they thought he was down there alone. they hear gunfire they go down see him shot several times in the chest on his couch. bullet shells nearby and detectives say family has no idea who want him killed or why. they don't have a motive,
6:08 am
killer, they don't have much even though they have witnesses just a few feet away , this is a strange case for sure. >> yes, all right, steve, thinks kind of a related story here. a rally this morning for safer streets, bikers and residents will be lined up in a couple of hours to create a human bike lane, gannon 13th and pine streets, the protest comes after another cyclist was struck while riding in an unprotect bike lane last friday. residents are demanding that the mayor and council make concrete commitment so to speak to protecting the people that live here. >> another deadly case where they were hit by a trash truck right there. >> yeah. also a stolen police suv is being used in a whole crime spree and they have a warning for anybody who lives in and around new jersey right new because they are worried about someone pretending to be a trooper. so if you are a concerned about the identity of the state trooper what you need to does call 911.
6:09 am
the guy went on a spree of three robberies right there they found the suv. >> um-hmm. to rest or not to rest, that is the question, it is a question our coach doug pederson has been hearing a lot lately why he says he is not worried about that
6:10 am
6:11 am
well, somebody stole a state trooper's suv. you know that by now. and is committing crimes in new jersey. you know that by now. >> well, concern they found the suv but they don't have two uniforms and some of the weapons inside. before they found the suv investigators say a guy went on a crime spree in that vehicle, that was taken from outside trooper's home in middlesex county on sunday and then that suspect went on the spree of three robberies pulling over, robbing a truck driver on the turnpike, and then stopping at a gas station to fill up his tank and took off without paying and then finally pulled over and then robbed a cabdriver who was going near a mall. now they say he didn't use any weapons in those robberies but this has a lot of people very concerned about someone impersonating a trooper. >> it is scary, obviously, you don't always ask a state troop are for their identification when they come up on you or
6:12 am
something. >> you can do that. here's what the state police is now saying. they have put out this warning for everybody living in new jersey. if you are quote or anybody have any concerns or suspicion about the validity of an officer's identification, call 911 to report the information and seek confirmation about the officer's credentials they will gladly give that to you. >> the question is, in this climate do you stop? try in the stopping and see what happens. >> you might have to stop. >> yeah. >> okay. >> 6:12. here's bob. >> we're stopped on the turnpike all traffic stopped on the westbound lanes on the pennsylvania turnpike, an accident right at the route one philly bensalem interchange we will have more details as we take a live look at philly international, put your tray in the upright position no delays here, hopefully it will be better flying day with all that mess out of atlanta yesterday, sue has the forecast when we come

6:16 am
one with the neshaminy mall in the background. this is westbound side of the pennsylvania turnpike where an accident typically where those accidents occur they come out of the toll plaza that sharp curve to go west on the turnpike, not sure of any injuries but right now all westbound lanes are closed so what you are seeing now is folks stacked up here on route one obviously not able to get on the turnpike. these folks have been turned around at toll plaza and heading back but it will have a ripple effect. there we go again ripple effect today, not only on route one but route one coming out of langhorne here already jammed into the turnpike to go west. best bet maybe street road working your way over to 611, get on at willow grove, still shot from the turnpike camera again all westbound lanes closed at the philly bensalem interchange. early morning fatal accident about 3:00 this morning rest valley road one of those
6:17 am

6:18 am
anything at all, in fact we are expecting sunshine and we are seeing sunshine on radar, on traffic cameras i should say this morning already in advance of the sunrise, but by tomorrow, we have got a cold front coming through in the morning and that will make things chilly for wednesday and thursday, so get ready to shiver by then. most of our temperatures in the 40's we will get to the mid 50's later today, much chillier tomorrow and especially on thursday, a blustery day back in the 50's on friday and we should reach 60 degrees but we have a chance of rain on saturday shower chance on christmas eve and, on christmas day, karen and mike. >> on christmas day. >> can't wait for christmas day. >> thanks, sue. so things are slowly getting back to normal as the busiest airport in this country and world right now. >> officials new saying a burning cable underground led to sunday's power outage that crippled atlanta's airport power outage led to the grounding and counseling of
6:19 am
the hundreds of flights leaving thousands of passengers stranded. yet another ripple effect. more than 400 flights were cancelled, the outage could still impact more flights today and tomorrow. if you have travel plans let me be the last to say check with your airline. >> good advice. >> thank you. >> always good advice they recommend that. >> yes. we're making progress in the horrific fires burning out there in southern california. they have half contain. they do not think they will have this fully under control until next year, really sometime next movement hundreds of homes have been destroyed, around ventura and santa barbara, continuing to see destruction and burning there it has been two weeks since this fire started, this is now third largest fire they have had in california's history. well, it is big day down in d.c. president trump and a lot of republicans are ready to go, g.o.p. tax overhaul

6:32 am
one comes into play, neshaminy mall, so traffic heading west right now it looks like it involves this tractor trailer. there is at lee one car, another car here few other vehicles and when they say shut down for an hour right out of the gate that is not good news. but all westbound lanes closed now we have another truck, two more trucks three trucks all involved here with a number of vehicles. this is a tough interchange because everybody gets on at philadelphia, and you quickly, folks quickly try to go over to that left lane as they try to head west and then they have the big rigs coming from new jersey, go ahead, you you can pull back out, live look, closure scene westbound, there is on ramp, okay, and this is, sometimes we see overturned tractor trailer here. so this whiffle a come minute necessity effect on commuters, in been sale he will trying to get out of northeast philadelphia with all westbound lanes closed, we're
6:33 am
at lee seeing an hour. lets go to my maps. i will show you quick alternates there, is grid lock from the ground shot. is there one of our camera kind of looking at the accident scene. is there the stretch closed from philadelphia over to willow grove, your alternate is not an easy one street road all the way over to 611 coming in from new jersey over that turnpike connection bridge and may want to go down i-95 and work your way through city to get back on the turnpike but sue, we will have an update from sky fox and forecast for today looking good. >> slow go out there on that road but weather will not get in your way. we have a nine out of 10 your weather number great today but bus stop buddy, big pile of hard candy, to, national hard candy day but not too bundle up. you need a jacket. most of the temperatures in the 40's. we have green showing up on radar up there in the lehigh valley and maybe a sprinkle or two but it hasn't been a big

deal. road dry here in philadelphia, 43 degrees. we have to wait until 7:18 for the sunrise. temperatures mostly in the 40 's. we have 38 in millville and mount pocono but heading to a high of 56 degrees, breezy, milder afternoon, we will not stay in the 50's we will talk about a temperature roller coaster ride in the seven day forecast, back to you. >> look at the headline, best view instead of the spoken, deja vu, that is a good way to put it. yeah, too fast in the curve. that does sound familiar from two years ago. new details emerging about yesterday's deadly train derailment, this is a live look out from washington state in between salt, tacoma, the train was heading to portland. we are learning speed may have played a role in this one amtrak train was traveling 80 miles an hour as you hit the curve when it should have been going less than 30 miles
6:35 am
an hour in that particular zone. >> as we were taking a live look out through can see a very active investigation clearly lauren johnson and we can see the giant cranes out there what have we learn right now, lauren. >> reporter: you remember this karen ptc, positive train control we heard about that in philadelphia after an amtrak crash here back in may 2015 and we're hearing about it yet again. amtrak train derailed on monday in washington state killing three injuring dozens more, and it was not using a congressman dated safety technology that could have prevented the disaster. amtrak president confirmed the technology was not in use on the stretch of track, system designed to automatically stop a train before an accident occurs, it uses gps to monitor train location and it activates the brakes if the train exceed speed limit to ensure no collisions between trains, two and a half years ago may 2015 amtrak train
6:36 am
derailed after stopping at 30th street station and heading toward new york city. that derailment killed eight people injured 100 more because train was traveling too fast in the curve at that time the speed control system was not inn stalled. >> my conscious started shaking really really badly and then, you know, things were falling off the shelf. >> ptc would prevent types of accidents such as this. whether it would have prevent ed this accident remains to be seen. we should remember ptc cannot prevent every accident. >> that investigation will determine what could have happened here as investigatrs look more in the crash, sadly they are expect to go find more victims they have not searched all 13 real cars involved or 14 cars involved 13 of them did in fact leave the track, technology decide it it was a real scary situation for so many people they describe hearing the
6:37 am
screech, hearing metal clash and then complete silence before screams rang out on interstate five. people said they knew they were save they jumped out of their cars karen and mike to help pull people out of that train. >> we saw trains and tractor trail their was crushed by the trains because it was busy, the commute there on highway five. >> it was their morning rush hour and then that train came falling on to the head of the vehicles driving because low crashing through their roofs. >> believe it or not nobody in cars or trucks were killed. everybody that who their life was on the train. >> police are searching for a suspect after a homicide in overbrook a 27 year-old man was found shot to death in his basement. >> oddly there were people in the home when they occur. they heard it. he they knew something went wrong. lets get out to steve keeley to explain it. steve. >> reporter: so often we are standing outside police headquarters to report on a killing that happen in the dark overnight without any witnesses around. this is just the opposite, it

6:39 am
this time. >> family's house real close to lankanol hospital police get there right away, they get him in their car get him into lankenau's emergency room but several shots fired, point blank, and he didn't stand a chance, pronounced dead within a half an hour of the family hearing gunshots, karen and mike, family brought here to headquarters to help homicide detectives figure out who their mystery house guest was turned murderer who came and went without them even seeing. >> wow. >> hopefully we will figure who it is. 6:39. so there is a woman who has holiday spirit and she decorates every single who day as she goes all out but someone else goes all out thieves who come in and steel stuff thaw worked so hard to put out there and make the neighborhood look great. it happened not once but not twice but three times in just two years. >> security camera you can tell there caught this 1100
